'Rahul Gandhi missing' posters come up in Amethi leaving Congress red faced

Lucknow: Leaving the Congress party red faced, dozens of posters describing party vice president Rahul Gandhi as "missing" have come up in his Amethi Lok Sabha constituency in Uttar Pradesh.

According to IANS, the posters carry the picture of Rahul Gandhi with a caption that reads: there is a reward for anyone who could trace the missing Amethi MP. 

The posters, however, are not attributed to any individual or organisation.

The Congress No. 2 has not visited his parliamentary constituency for six months, leading to anger and disappointment among the voters. 

The posters also said that Gandhi has insulted his voters with his behaviour.

While Congress workers in the district accuse the BJP and other political opponents for the sudden coming up of the posters, mostly in Gowriganj area; many rue that Gandhi has lost interest in Amethi after the humiliating state assembly poll defeat in March.

The posters also blame the Congress leader's absence for the slowing down of development work initiated from the MP Local Area Development fund. 

A large section of Congress workers have sent an SOS to the party leadership to ask Rahul Gandhi to visit Amethi soon.
